I would like to thank The Ninja Gaiden College Campus Tour for being the reason we have no Ninja Gaiden 2 demo on the Marketplace.
It is a good marketing move to generate some hype and get those kids excited to come check ou...
I came across this picture today and it intrigued me a bit more than it would someone who hasn't visited the world of Rapture.
According to my calculations, the big daddy should be there, in 3... 2...
So last night I decided I wanted to play some r6v2 MP. All I wanted to do was play some deathmatch. Every man for himself. It seemed like a good plan. I havenít played much MP on the game because it seems like a big pain in t...
I have reason to believe this is real, although it is very likely not. But it looks real nonetheless.
Personally I dont have a Wii or any reason to play this (I am very familiar withthe art of gettting your piss stream into the bowl)
but all of the female gamers out there with cock envy might want to check this out.
I know these are free, and nobody is required to offer a demo but sheesh. It has been at least a couple of weeks since a new demo has been offered up. It would be one thing if no new games were coming out, but there has been ...
So I got up a little early today so I could check out this beta. Im wondering if the extra 20 minutes of sleep would have been a better bet. I will say I didnít get enough time to make a fair assessment of the game, and I wil...
Whatís up with Rainbow 6 Vegas 2? Is it any good? Is it really a sequel, or is it more like r6v 1.5?? Well I will tell you, it is very 1.5 ish. That is not necessarily a bad thing in this case, just maybe not as exciting as i...
So, its a sad day on one hand and a happy day on the other. Sad because last night after firing up the old cod4 mp I realized I had had enough. Sure I was searching and destroying. I was throwing frags across the map and plan...
I wish I had the phtoshop skills. The ability to create some sort of video. I wish I had the ability to create something other than these poorly written sentences to give back. However, I do not. So, happy birthday d - toid ...
We have had some damn good write ups here in the c blogs about the single player campaign. I'm not too sure however if the MP has been touched on. The bottom line is, its fun. Its alot of fun. It is somewhat limited, but luc...
You know the book that comes with every game you get? You know how the last few pages of all of them have a few blank pages with "Notes" at the top? (if a game doesn't have this, return it immediately for they have violated t...
About big filth One of us since 8:08 PM on 10.05.2007
Hello Destructoid. I play a decent amount of video games and spend just as much time (if not more) reading and writing about them. Why? Thats a good question. I'll have to get back to you on that one. In the meantime, i'd like to play some games and read and write about them.
I've been doing a small amount of blogging in the recent months and I recently decided that if i'm going to be doing that, I might as well do it here where someone might actually read it. Who am I kidding? Noone will actually read it.
I don't really enjoy writing, I do however get an amazing satisfaction from spell check. I'm old school. I remember the day I got my NES like it was yesterday, 1985. Well, actually I remember the year better than the day. Give me a break I was only 5. Do you remember when you were 5? Ok then.
Moving on. My next console was the Sega Genesis. Some of my best memories of that era revolve around the "beef" between the Genesis owners and the Super Nintedno owners. This wasn't some bullshit make believe beef like the "East Coast/ West Coast" beef was. This was real beef. You know, the type were "ya mom's ain't safe to walk the streets". I still have the "SEGA" tattoo across the belly to prove it.
Next was the Sega Saturn. (i did have the 32x and the Sega CD but those are hardly worth talking about as far as I'm concerned.) The Saturn was cool. I remember being rather impressed by the graphics and falling in love with Tomb Raider. Not because of the girl like some of you perverts but because it was just amazing. Somewhere around this time frame I was feeling a little bit of envy towards the Nintendo 64 guys. I don't know why I got off the Nintendo side of things, it wasn't intentional. I stepped into the Sega universe with nothing but the fondest memories of my Nintendo days. But alas, what can one do when receiving such things as gifts. Either way, I was quite happy with my Sega Saturn. That was until a new friend introduced me to his Playstation. (Although that might have sounded gay, by no means was it meant to.) He showed me how much better Tomb Raider looked, and how much better Tekken was compared to anything I had on the Saturn at the time.
This is where it all changed. I was sold. I needed a PlayStation. Even if it meant doing the unthinkable. Getting rid of the Sega Saturn.
And so it was done.
Moving into the the next generation, my recollections aren't quite as clear. I remember having a PS2 and I remember buying my Dreamcast. I don't know which came first but I know the guy who lived upstairs from me could burn those Dreamcast games onto cd's and they would play like a dream. I know he would give me 5 games for 5 dollars, and I know he seemed to have them all.
Could the PS2 do that? I suppose I could use Google and find an answer to that, but I'm trying to prove a point. What is the point? The point is SEGA KICKED ASS and they were steamrolled by SONY! That actually doesn't prove that point in any way, but you know what I mean.
Many years pass
Despite having my beloved Sega Dreamcast tucked away safely in a bed of pirated discs in my closet I purchased my 2nd PS2. This may have had something to do with the fact the DC had long been discontinued by this point.
Perhaps an XBOX would have been a good choice at this point? I was hardly aware of what was REALLY going on in the video game world by this time. I was on the outside looking in. Clueless. Much like I am today. The only difference is, I now have an XBOX 360.
It's definitely had a huge negative impact on my life. My wife moved out. My kids never answer the phone when I call and I cant seem to keep a job for more than a few weeks.
Just Kidding. I'm actually a pretty cool guy and I'm just working on finding the perfect balance of time between playing COD4 and bangin' super hot models.
